A weekend at the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel – Sydney

At the end of last year, I entered a competition that was focused around an ideal weekend in Sydney. I summarised all of my favourite things that this wonderful city has to offer in a blog post, which you can check out here. It seems that luck was on my side, and I ended up […]

My ideal weekend in Sydney

I often get asked for suggestions on what to do over the weekend. Planning for me normally begins on a Thursday. Any earlier in the week feels too soon to be discussing, as there are still too many work days to get through before those two glorious days off.

The Boathouse – Palm Beach

Happy Saturday lovelies!! I have a quick post with some smile-happy pictures today. Two weeks ago we headed up to Palm Beach on a sunny Sunday. We stopped for lunch at the Boathouse, which I have blogged about previously, but from the Boathouse in Balmoral Beach. Having the same owners, the overall concept is the […]

Hunter Valley – NSW – Food & Travel Diary

The Potting Shed at The Grounds – Alexandria

On the weekend, there is nothing that I enjoy more than brunch or lunch at one of Sydney’s wonderful cafés or restaurants. In recent years, there has been an abundance of new places opening that have put many small and local suburbs on the food eating grid. I’m talking about the likes of Cornersmith in […]

Popolo – Rushcutters Bay

The Scarborough Hotel – Scarborough

We’ve just had one of the most fantastic weekends full of sunshine, there is nothing more uplifting then having the sun out in the middle of winter. To mix things up a little and get out of Sydney for the day, we headed off on a road trip towards Wollongong this morning. We drove through […]
